From the State of Nature to Municipal Zoning Law

Legal Judg(e)ments Podcast, Season 1, Episode 8

Bob and Dan Dain talk about the role of the judiciary in land use litigation and how the concept of “injury,” as interpreted by the court in Murchison v. Zoning Board of Appeals of Sherborn, saved real estate development in Massachusetts particularly in “downzoning” jurisdictions like Boston. Dan also explains how zoning regulations constitute the single greatest contributor to the obesity crisis in America. A must-listen for all land use lawyers, town planners, and real estate developers.
